voluntarily give everything? how to educate and to whom i am not sure people are so aware how much misinformation with a single individual they could but most of the information is inaccurate. even with the database segregators even roberta who live todd a street 50 years ago is in l.a. you come up with the aggregate to show conviction said failure to appear for the traffic violation. i don't think people realize the information that they have to try to clear there name. >> the first question is important it is not just brazil but china and every rare but the recognition that our multinational corporations are protected by the nation state and they may be a multinational and other ways but there is a parochial concern and a recognition of other areas of control a end to independence to those places to be very important and if these companies want to retain their position they will have to shape up to take on the own government. we are aid normal nation of. we don't have to control everything it takes more room to become more sensible the concerns wages, it's jobs, and we may find t

's educational about this facility. >> fire fly by artist ned con is an art installation which rises straight from the golden gate avenue sidewalk to the top of the building. >> the fire fly wall will be 5 by 5 polley carbon plates that will move with the wind and show a wave effect in the daytime. when those also swing back and forth and they hit the fulcrum, it will also set up an led light that will cover the fire fly. so, at nighttime people in another part of san francisco can see the side of our building and about 20 feet wide and 10 stories high will be a wall that will flickr on and off like fire flies at nighttime. it will be so energy efficient that if all those lights go on, it will be the equivalent of a 40 watt bulb. and also the new piece of artwork going all the way down the side of the building, which looks like this incredible wind ripples on a pond. and i thought, oh, my god, how incredible, how wonderful. >> inside the building we will have water walls in the main staircase, and the water will be dripping through the side of the wall. you'll be able to hear it, you'll be ab
-- what was interesting for me is the painting of the green stripes and there's a whole education component of this in terms of how they're designing it and where vehicles -- you know, where they're proposing for vehicles and the bicycle lanes to sort of merge so that cars and trucks can make a right hand turn. i think that needs to be some thought out -- i said are you going to write on the street for right turn enter here and they hadn't thought about that so i think that's where there's potential of risk with that because i -- you know, and even after having this conversation and knowing sort of, like, the serrated green stripe means that's where a vehicle can pass through, as i was coming home i wanted to make a right on to 9th street and realized oh, i had passed that serrated area. you know, even though i had that conversation, i am still not accustomed in my mind, you know, of that's where i enter to make the right hand turn and so being cognizant of that, you know, i went up a couple more blocks before i made my right hand turn instead of doing it, but i think that there n
a better education and if you can be more creative, you'll do better and if you don't, then unfortunately you're going to be struggling. >> what are you worried about when you look at new york after bloomberg? what are you worried about being undone or a legacy of government that will be perhaps eroded? >> i think most of the things we've done hopefully if we've done a good job will stay in place. yesterday i was in london. the weather was nice. you think better of any city when the sun is shining. but london is a real competitor to new york. and we've got to understand if we were to stop improving, stop diversifying, stop investing, we will get pushed back and other places will take over. i was in paris the day before. i had dinner with some people all of whom talked about their friends moving out of paris and out of france because tax rates are so high. those are people that will create jobs and pay taxes down the road. you can't hold the waves from coming in. you have to keep making society open and you have to keep providing opportunities. if you start to focus on equal results rather
create jobs. we could keep harmful cuts to education programs, or we could give more kids a head start. hire more teachers in math and science and help more kids afford a college education. we can keep doling out corporate welfare, or we can invest in renewable energy that creates jobs and lowers carbon pollution. priorities, choices, that is what this is about. and the stakes for the middle class couldn't be higher. if we don't pick the right priorities now, make the right choices now, we could hinder growth and opportunity for decades and leave our children with something less. that includes the obsession with cutting just for the sake of cutting. that doesn't help our economy grow. it will hold us back. remember, our deficits are getting smaller, not bigger. on my watch their falling at the fastest pace in 60 years. that gives us room to fix our long-term debt problems without sticking it to young people or undermining our bedrock retirement and health security programs or cutting basic research that helps us grow. here is the bottom line. congress should pass a budget that cut thin
kids are going to have a really tough road. and the fact that the government is educating parents, making fruits and vegetables, reducing the sugar content in school lunches is critically important to getting control of our health and reducing the cost of health care. frankly, obama care with preventative care will help that. >> i have to get john in here. do you think government should have a role in our refrigerators, which is basically what we're talking about? >> good lord, no. government is not educating anything. look at our education system. we keep going down in the rankings. as the only person on this panel that weighing over 250 pounds, if you send me a letter for eating a chocolate bunny on easter, we're going to have a fight. we have lazy kids in this country. they need a boot on their hind quarters to get them out and play in the yard. they don't need notes on halloween. that's ridiculous. >> this lady as far as i'm concerned should be addressed as a bully because that's what she was. >>> thanks, guys. and thanks to bernard whitman for joining us. >> thank you for hav

is the idea? is it to get money for programs for health and education for kids about not drinking south air drippings or to make it more expensive and prohibit it for people to buy it and they buy less of it. >> we're not prohibiting anything. it's like a tobacco tax. we saw a dramatic decline in cigarette smoking because of the tax and the tax funded from very educational -- important educational programs. the hope is we will see a reduction, particularly in the big, big kind of sugary beverages. people consume huge amounts of the stuff and it will fund the physical activity, nutrition programs in schools and in our parks and elsewhere and phys- ed, school lunch, increased rec center hours, et cetera. >> in the past, we pushed them as taxes on big corporations or idea. big oil and big tobacco, now this is big sugar and they not going to pay the take. the individual courage 8 pay the tax. >> it will be at the distribution point and one of the goals is to reduce consumption and just like cigarette taxes. >> why not ban sugary drinks? >> people should have the choice, like we don't ban cigare
connecting young men of color to jobs, education, employment. >> i talked about that, i dwid, very controversial no-talking points, where we talked about what people can do to empower themselves. and in that same broadcast, we mexed the mayor's initiative to help, especially minority young men, at least feel better about themselves. as if, you know, they own their own being and they own their own neighborhoods. that they're worth something. and this is something that new york city is doing that the rest of the country is doing. and they are. >> i believe you can can do more to stop bullets with education and employment than you can ever do with sfop and frisk. >> in short term, when you have an immediate problem, you need an immediate addressment. and ill do agree with you. i think what we have to do is try to change the environment in which our minorities live. that's a systemic issue. i don't think the fix to this problem is anyone dynamic. >> i just need one minute, producers, i know we have to go. but let's talk about people. we often talk about people voting against their own

was going on on the ground. an urban city well-educated and libyans have exploded with access to soft loans over the internet. of the kids were getting shot as they tried to move around the cities so they began to use gugler and android sell funds to plot the locations of the snipers shooting at them. they would put pins in the map don't go down that street. the french start to see these pins appearing on buglers. so they flew reconnaissance mission so then they obviously started to bomb those positions when the school kids realize to free-market the french will baum it they went out to mark every position they could find and then whenever destroyed they would take them down and disappear from to coerce. -- google immerse a crowd source synchronized bombing a system that the pentagon spent billions of dollars the school kids are on the ground because they have access to connectivity that would have been impossible three of four years ago. as far as i can tell talking to kids on the ground those on the french task force at no time did they ever talk to each other it was self synchronized bas
is not there that this improves educational outcomes. even the department of education's own study on head start showed a lot of these early investments don't pay off. >> let's turn to new jersey, where you are, a voter, james, and chris christie the republican governor looks like he's going to coast to re-election. but there's an interesting ballot initiative that would embed, raise the minimum wage and embed future minimum wage increases into the constitution. >> right. into the state constitution. it's knocking the state minimum wage up above about a point above the federal one going to about 8.5%, or excuse me $8.25 an hour i should say. this is really, when you look at young people, and their struggle to find work in new jersey, this is about the last thing we need. the -- our state has a higher unemployment rate than any other our anybodies, pennsylvania, new york, delaware, and really high, above the national average. so now you're taking that group of people that wants to come into the workforce, that want skills, that wants to show they can do a job, and you're making it that much harder for small b
and they can select it. >> why wasn't there a better education effort to get out in front of this and go to americans whose policies were going to change and explain why. there is a fairly good case to be made about minimum standards, the kinds of things that can hit you if you have a substandard policy. never was that education process carried through from the white house, and i think that was a failing. >> the obama allies and fans i have talked to, their opinion is twofold. one, if you believe government is the only one able to solve these big problems that you undermine it for years, if not more, with this troubled rollout. and the obama people who championed him to win reelection, look at the cover of "new yorker." it looks so retro when it comes to technology. >> david, i tell you again, i think bob said the key thing. we're in the early innings of the game. to declare this, to define this whole program by the web start -- by the website debacle at the beginning and the rollout, i think, would be a huge mistake. they will fix the website, i'm confident of that. if they don't, as de
